"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Pastry for double crust pie

Directions:
Directions:
Roll out bottom crust to 1/8 inch and fit into 9 pie pan. Trim edges close to pan. In a large bowl, with rubber spatula, gently toss fruit with remaining ingredients.
Spoon fruit mixture into pastry-lined pie plate; dot with butter or margarine. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
For top crust, roll to 12 round. Place on top of fruit. Trim and flute pie crust edges.

5. With a sharp knife, cut a few slashes in top crust to allow steam to escape during baking. Bake pie 50 minutes, or until crust is golden and fruit is tender. Cover pie loosely with foil to prevent over-browning. Remove pie from oven and cool in a wire rack 1 hour; serve warm.
